Birth Doula, Lactation Education Counselor, Perinatal Yoga Instructor
Clara lived in Shanghai with her family for over a decade where she practiced prenatal/postpartum yoga. She found her calling as a doula after giving birth to her children and while working with pregnant yoga students. She completed her circle of care by training and certifying with DONA International. As a prenatal yoga teacher, it is her aim to help a woman work with her body through labor and not fear the normal process of birth. She strives to help women be prepared both physically and mentally for childbirth and becoming a mother. Clara experienced the many benefits of bringing her baby to the yoga mat and loves seeing new moms gaining confidence and balance through mom and baby yoga. As a lactation educator and counselor, she also helps moms feel prepared and supported in breastfeeding. Clara Completed the "Heart and Hands" Intensive Midwifery Course in May 2020.
Clara believes when a mom feels well supported through the cycle of pregnancy, childbirth and into the postnatal period, it helps families get off to the best possible start on the journey of parenthood.
Clara, her husband and 2 boys moved from Shanghai to Marin County in 2015 where they love spending time by the water and taking advantage of all the bay area has to offer.
